Verification that common variation at 2q37.1, 6p25.3, 11q24.1, 15q23, and 19q13.32 influences chronic lymphocytic leukaemia risk.
MetadataShow full item record
A recent genome wide association study of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) provided evidence that common variation at 2q13 (rs17483466), 2q37.1 (rs13397985), 6p25.3 (rs872071), 11q24.1 (rs735665), 15q23 (rs7176508) and 19q13.32 (rs11083846) affects CLL risk. To verify and further explore the relationship between these variants and CLL risk we genotyped case-control datasets from Spain and Sweden (824 cases, 850 controls). Combined data provided statistically significant support for an association between genotypes at rs13397985, rs872071, rs735665, rs7176508 and rs11083846 and CLL risk. CLL risk increased with increasing numbers of risk alleles (P(trend) = 1.40 x 10(-15)), consistent with a polygenic model of disease susceptibility. These data validate the relationship between common variation and risk of CLL.

Molecular cytogenetic analysis consistently identifies translocations involving chromosomes 1, 2 and 15 in five embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma cell lines and a PAX-FOXO1A fusion gene negative alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma cell line. Roberts, I; Gordon, A; Wang, R; Pritchard-Jones, K; Shipley, J; Coleman, N (2001-01)Rhabdomyosarcoma in children is a "small round blue cell tumour" that displays skeletal muscle differentiation. Two main histological variants are recognised, alveolar (ARMS) and embryonal (ERMS) rhabdomyosarcoma. Whereas ...

Previous analyses have examined exposures related to sex hormones in women as potential protective factors for these tumors, with inconsistent results. Previous ...
